When's Happy Hour?: Work Hard So You Can Hardly Work Reviews

  • Runner10

    When’s Happy Hour? Is filled with timely advice in the modern workplace. I found myself laughing and cringing when I read this book. I think young professionals will enjoy this book and may even recognize some situations they have already been navigating.

  • Jessica

    This is a great book for someone starting out in their career. Funny and useful advice!

    I first heard of the Betches through one of their viral videos a co-worker sent me, which lead me to this book. This book is laid out in a clear, linear way, covering how to write a resume, nail an interview, deal with bosses, etc. The resume building and interview advice wasn't really relevant to me, but this book would be great for the key demographic - which would be a young woman who's a recent grad of college.

    That said, I did find a lot of helpful information in this, especially in the sect

    That said, I did find a lot of helpful information in this, especially in the sections about how to ask for a raise/promotion, and what to do when you're being sexually harassed at work. All in all, this is a really good primer on how to handle office/business life, with a lot of sarcastic humor to keep things lively.

    This would be a great graduation gift for a sorority girl. I don’t mean that in a derogatory way—I read it as a 26-year-old who has been in the “real world” for over four years now, and as someone who feels like they have a relatively solid sense of direction and success in life, there just wasn’t much in here that could help me at this point in my life. That said, the Betches are always hilarious and never fail to give great advice in a relatable way, which in itself makes the book worth pickin

    I know I'm not the target audience for this book. I'm not a Millennial and I'm not just out of college.

    I think this book has some good advice for young women just leaving college. I'm sure the casual tone will appeal to Millennials and Gen Z. It just seemed a bit much for me. Too many references to the Bachelor and Vanderpump Rules for me. The authors have two best selling books already so there must be a market for this type of book. I did appreciate the chapter on harrassment and I found myse

Too many references to the Bachelor and Vanderpump Rules for me. The authors have two best selling books already so there must be a market for this type of book. I did appreciate the chapter on harrassment and I found myself nodding my head at the Betches take on feminism.

    I'm sure they have another hit on their hands with the right audience.

    It was...okay. Not their best work.

    I personally found the humor in their previous books much better. This book lacks in humor. Which I understand, this is a book about jobs. Which is a serious topic. But it's also a book written my The Betches, there are definitely ways they could have inserted more humor into the book.

    I would also say that the advice in this book is more focused towards the college girl audience, not the already working females. Most of the advice is fairly useless if you've a

    I would also say that the advice in this book is more focused towards the college girl audience, not the already working females. Most of the advice is fairly useless if you've already been job hunting/had a job/have experience.

    Overall, meh. I don't think jobs is the best topic for them to write about. They should stick with dating and love, probably.

    Definitely speaks more to women that are just entering the workforce, than women who have been working for some time. I find the book’s voice a little too juvenile and lacking in actual in-depth advice. Perhaps, being a working 40 year old woman colors my judgement, but some of these pointers just seem incredibly basic and common sense. If people need to be told that flipping out on your boss and sleeping with random coworkers is a bad idea, the problem is a lot worse than we think!

    I work from home as a medical consultant. According to The Betches, I must be a pathetic loser who never gets any work done. They don't know me at all! These millenial women sure have an "interesting" way of looking at things and honestly, that's why I read it. As a middle-aged woman, I am curious to see how younger generations look at the world. Much of the advice in this often comedic book is obvious, other bits and pieces a bit off the rails. For example, I strongly discourage women from swip

    I work from home as a medical consultant. According to The Betches, I must be a pathetic loser who never gets any work done. They don't know me at all! These millenial women sure have an "interesting" way of looking at things and honestly, that's why I read it. As a middle-aged woman, I am curious to see how younger generations look at the world. Much of the advice in this often comedic book is obvious, other bits and pieces a bit off the rails. For example, I strongly discourage women from swiping right on Tinder not because they are interested in a guy but because they want to "network" with his connections. This isn't LinkedIn, folks. I am sure it is going to go over well when the guy is rejected but asked to hook up these women with his buddies. Other advice, like how to deal with toxic people in the office, is a bit more practical when you look past the wise-ass delivery. Altogether, it's an amusing book but not one that will speak to everyone.

    In the introduction, the authors claim that this book may not be for everyone. I actually liked the introduction and the first few chapters, but I came to recognize myself as the "not for everyone" reader as the book progressed. While there was a great deal of justification for self-permission for informal language "bros" would get away with, the tone did not change throughout the book.

    In the introduction, the authors claim that this book may not be for everyone. I actually liked the introduction and the first few chapters, but I came to recognize myself as the "not for everyone" reader as the book progressed. While there was a great deal of justification for self-permission for informal language "bros" would get away with, the tone did not change throughout the book. Some nuggets of wisdom were included here in terms of how to present self, prepare for interviews, and pace career development, but the authors needed to change the presentation to more sincere writing or actually go the opposite way to heightened satire and comedy.

    I'll look up the blogs by the Betches. I suspect that I would prefer that format for this group. Simply, an old-fashioned book was not the best medium for the lessons here.
